Hi there! Recently, I have update my iPad mini Retina display from iOS 7.0.6 jailbreak to iOS 8 without restauration, only updating. I saw that my space became 11.7 from 12.8 that I have in iOS 7. Is normal? Can I get back my 12.8 GB?

You can't update a jailbroken device without losing space like that.

You need to restore in iTunes when you update a jailbroken device.

Restore in iTunes and you'll get your space back.

Wtf is "without re saturation .

Updating to latest ios is always going to take up more room than last ios version .

You should always create a back up.... And hit restore (tab next to update) update always takes up more space. Re do it and press restore instead.

This isn't a jailbreak question take it up with apple
